Description: Infectious Disease Epidemiology is a concise reference guide which provides trainees and practicing epidemiologists with the information that they need to understand the basic concepts necessary for working in this specialist area. Divided into two sections, part one comprehensively covers the basic principles and methods relevant to the study of infectious disease epidemiology. It is organised in order of increasing complexity, ranging from a general introduction to subjects such as mathematical modelling and sero-epidemiology. Part two examines key major infectious diseases that are of global significance. Grouped by their route of transmission for ease of reference, they include diseases that present a particular burden or a high potential for causing mortality. This practical guide will be essential reading for postgraduate students in infectious disease epidemiology, health protection trainees, and practicing epidemiologists.

Exercises In Epidemiology


Category: Books
Description: Traditional epidemiology coursework is centered on the design and analysis of disease control. This important knowledge forms the backbone of what epidemiology is, but it can sometimes become a rote exercise in calculations rather than what it can and should be-training in thinking like an epidemiologist. EXERCISES IN EPIDEMIOLOGY enriches the core epidemiology coursework with a set of living, breathing problems from the real-world epidemiology literature. Comprising nearly 200 questions and answers drawn from published studies, this one-of-a-kind text allows students in epidemiology and public health to cultivate their skills in a real-world context while familiarizing themselves with core epidemiologic principles: rates and proportions, causal inference, and confounding. Answers to every question, along with each step in the reasoning that supports them, are included so that students can compare notes with a senior epidemiologist. With its practical, analytically sophisticated approach to this vital subject matter, EXERCISES IN EPIDEMIOLOGY prepares readers to make the transition from student to professional like no other text.
